Re: incredible!

Denise, All that they did so far in that video is not break the mast. They are still pretty screwed as the video ended - The only thing in thier favor is the boat flopped back into it's port side and into a mere round-up. The boat could have just as easily fell back onto it's starboard side, wherin they would expereience a really bad hair day as the boat would automatically have rounded down. I had one bad round up situation in pretty marginal conditions and I can tell you it is pretty violent. The good news is nobody fell off and I suppose nobody broke any bones.
